We are a married couple who live in a rural home in beautiful West Wales with some land that we are slowly developing in line with Permaculture principles. This spring we are creating a new building for guest stays. We have a vegetable garden, orchard, forest garden and woodland. We're always seeking to grow more, plant more and compost more!!! So we need lots of help setting up wormeries, making compost toilets, collecting seed, harvesting and making produce. We often have a small construction project on the go, gardening projects,woodland work and would also like some help with maintenance too. Cooking and eating are a key part of our day and so help in the kitchen is highly valued. We're part of a vibrant local community with lots going on; arts, dancing, theatre, music, ecological projects. There are lots of great walks, swimming, canoeing and surfing. We have a double room in the house and some weeks there may be space in our wooden cabin. We welcome couples and singles. We have 3 cats.

Woodland work or work with soil. John and I are happy to share our artistic interests. John loves music and enjoys listening to music with people and sharing his knowledge of music culture. I practice astrology and paint as a way of furthering my interest in the Earth in the cosmos. We are also experienced hosts, love travelling and meeting people from other cultures. We live in Wales which is a country with an ancient and rich cultural heritage; Neolithic culture, Celtic Saints and pilgrimage routes, myths and legends, Welsh language and song. The coastline is rugged and Cardigan Bay is noted for it's dolphins, porpoises and seals. As we both work as artists we do both require part of the day alone in our studios and workshop, unless we are all needed on the job.
